God Is On My Side

Psalm 118:6; “The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me”?

This verse can say an awfully lot to people. I have read this verse many times and it has meant a lot to me each time but when I just read it, it hit me, the Lord is truly with me. He loves me so much and He is with me, on my side. I feel like screaming to everyone, God is on my side. I believe I will scream it; GOD IS ON MY SIDE. What more could I ever want? There is nothing, nothing at all.

Psalm 46:1; “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble”. I will take refuge in the Lord. I know He will be with me to give me help and the strength I need. I know He will never let me down nor forsake me. He will always be there. What does refuge mean? It means a safe haven, sanctuary, shelter, place of safety, and shelter. All this is what He offers us. What an awesome God!

This doesn’t mean I will never have any trials and tribulation because I will but I know the Lord will be there for me. When something comes up all I have to do is call on the Lord, He is waiting for me. Do you know how I know this, well, I have gave my life over to the Lord many years ago and this was a promise from Him to me.

We never know exactly how He will help us but He will. It really doesn’t matter how He does it, just knowing that He will and does help us in the time of our need is all that is important.

God desires to be close not only to me but to all of His people. He wants to help and comfort each of us. We can have trust and confidence in God at all times. This is important for all to know. Never think God is far off from us because He isn’t. God will give us the ability and power so we are able to face uncertainties. All we need to do is remember what He promises us.


It was nice having you drop by. May you always know the love, joy, and peace of the Lord!

God is TRULY the only One in the world that is with us! How blessed we are to have Him to run to. I envision a mother hen gathering her chicks under her wings for protection...that's how I see God...gathering us, protecting us. Thank you for this sweet reminder of His great love and protection.
